Biography by Richie Unterberger. One of rock's most important singer/songwriters, the creator of a daring body of work who proved rock & roll could be art.

Lou Reed's first solo album is often carelessly overlooked in favor of Transformer, his much more well-known 1972 glam-rock 'masterpiece', but it's a shame, because this particular record is quite good. It's not a particularly great listening experience, of course.

Lou Reed's first album. Recorded in England with studio musicians, and even Lou thought of it as ordinary crap. However there are lots of good songs on the album. Songs wich he wrote when he played with the Velvet Underground.

Watch Lou Reed perform Coney Island Baby in this clip from 1984: . K. In early 1975, the record company was pressing Lou Reed down for the next album. Being in a particularly negative streak of mind, and surmising (with good enough reasons) that the industry guys were just trying to further cash in on his name, Lou Reed issued this. And got out of his contract. If you've heard five seconds of Metal Machine Music, you've heard it all.
